Proper way to upgrade to Nero 7

Postby VideoRoy on Fri Jan 20, 2006 9:52 pm

I just purchased my Nero 7 serial number online and downloaded the 7.0.1.4b installer. The trial version did not seem to be any different and had the same checksum so I assume they are really the same.

I currently have 6.6.0.18 installed and I was wondering what the best method to install to have the least issues (with the install any way).

Should I uninstall Nero 6 and run the version 6 Clean Install tool or do I need to install over Nero 6 to perserve anything?

Any help is appreciated.

I missed this the first time but I found this from CCampbell. I will try one of these methods.

The process you used should have done the trick.

I've done many tests with Nero 6 and Nero 7, and they do not normally cause this problems. I've done the following. (In all tests, I used Nero 7.0.0, and Nero 7.0.1.2, and only tested Windows XP)

1) Installed Nero 6. Then installed Nero 7 over Nero 6, and was promted to uninstall Nero 6, which our Nero 7 installer did for me, and then installed Nero 7. (No problems in performance occured) I then uninstalled Nero 7 using the Nero 7 Clean Tool.

2) Installed Nero 6. Used the Nero 6 Clean Tool to uninstall. Then installed Nero 7. (No problems in performance occured) I then uninstalled Nero 7 using the Nero 7 Clean Tool.

3) Installed Nero 6. Then uninstalled Nero 6 from the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs Feature. Then installed Nero 7. (No problems in performance occured) I then uninstalled Nero 7 using the Nero 7 Clean Tool.

4) Installed Nero 6. Manually uninstalled Nero 6 by simply deleting folders on C: drive. Then edited Registry to remove Ahead folders from HKEY_CURRENT_USER and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Then installed Nero 7. (No problems in performance occured) I then uninstalled Nero 7 using the Nero 7 Clean Tool.
